I have a problem about the configuration that to make my AEM public instance (version 5.6.1) working properly in enabled basic http authentication (user/password) dispatcher environment. I got other authentication request from Sling after passed http authentication. I was not aware of this and fail to log in with any my AEM account.
I want to disable basic authentication and ran across this thread. I know this will break replication, but I'm just curious on how to do it. It appears that I can set HTTP Basic Authentication on http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr/org.apache.sling.engine.impl.auth.SlingAuthenticator to Disabled, but that doesn't seem to work on several AEM 6.2 instances I have tested on. Replication is still working and I can pass the basic authentication headers to the admin UI and it logs me in.
